Lake History

Factoid: Kanopolis Lake contains 2 federally managed parks and 2 state managed parks as well as home to a 16000 acre wildlife area. The Kanopolis area is rich with history of the old west. The historic Smoky Hill Trail moved settlers to the west. Fort Ellsworth and Fort Harker held legendary fames of George Armstrong Custer, Buffalo Bill Cody, and Wild Bill Hickok. Longhorn cattle drives met the railroad in Ellsworth and rivaled the reputation of Dodge City. Travel the Legacy Trail and you will discover an 80 mile auto tour that highlights scenic vistas and historic locations around the lake area.
